Alecia Davis, the respected television host, entertainment journalist, writer and producer, will co-host this year’s MusicRow Awards at War Memorial Auditorium on June 26. She will join MusicRow Magazine’s Owner/Publisher Sherod Robertson for the annual event held to honor the Nashville music industry’s top talents.

“I’m really looking forward to sharing the hosting duties with such a bad-ass talent as Nashville’s Alecia Davis,” says Robertson. “She’s the consummate professional and I am truly blown away by her incredible expertise and infectious personality. While the goal for these awards is to honor the musical talent in our industry, it will be our goal that evening to make sure everyone attending has a ridiculously fun time doing so.”

Alecia Davis currently interviews today’s biggest celebrities on the Emmy award-winning entertainment news show, EXTRA. She joined the internationally syndicated program in 2007, and has garnered exclusive interviews with Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Kevin Costner, Keith Urban, Miley Cyrus, Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, and more.

In addition to her work at EXTRA, in 2008 Davis gained notoriety as she returned to her hometown of Nashville and her country music roots to serve as co-host of CMT’s Hot 20 Countdown and #1 Music and a Movie, as well as other specials, and Countdown to Country Music’s Top 100 Songs. Davis credits CMT for launching her career as a television host in 2000, on the popular series, Hit Trip.

Davis worked at TV Guide Network (2008-2011) as a correspondent interviewing Hollywood’s top celebrities at award shows, red-carpet movie premieres, set-visits, movie junkets and events. She served as guest host, alongside Chris Harrison, on the daily entertainment news program Hollywood 411. Davis also hosted many specials for the network, and with her background in country music, she was a natural choice to host the biography focused Close Up, featuring artists Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, and Blake Shelton, and The Sexy Stars of Country Music; as well as, What’s on DVD and Big Movie Premiere.

Davis then joined Reelz Channel (2011-2012), where she utilized her fashion background and served as co-host on Fashion Fanatics and a correspondent on the daily entertainment news program, Hollywood Dailies.

News Live, co-host of ABC Family’s XYZ at the Movies, CoverGirl’s The Look (13 looks of Taylor Swift) and Time-Life’s Country USA, with Larry Gatlin.

Apart from being a television host, Davis co-hosted the national weekly radio call-in show, Give and Take on WLAC (2006-2008); and she served as a contributing editor at Country Weekly Magazine.
